    Infinity pool!

    Beyond the edge of reason — would you dare?

    Only a slippery, submerged lip of rock stands between these bathers and a 100m drop over the world's largest waterfall.

    The Devil's Swimming Pool is certainly aptly named.

    While those pictures are breathtaking, I really wouldn't consider that safe.

    That's moving water! One slip and it's all over. I think adults can do what they want, but I'm not so sure I'd be taking my kids there to sit on the edge. I just don't see how that rock lip is really protecting them from going over.

    I skydived several years ago and these pics scare the heck out of me. The kids really bother me - no way would I let a little one near that place.

    I saw this pictures in an email chain and while the view is beautiful, there is NO WAY I'd let my child out there. It's bad enough when they lose your hand in a parking lot let alone around slippery rock next to a fatal fall.

    Beautiful place but I question the parenting skills of some of these people.

    I don't think it looks safe at all.

    No way should they have their young children out there.

    I agree. Kids are slippery when wet and they are quite unpredictable. One false move and your child is gone. How do they consider that to be in any way safe? I can see adults who are into extremes wanting to experience it, but to place their children on the edge of that just shows that the brains of those parents were not quite all there to begin with.
